WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND:
Having pre-diabetes means you have a high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. You CAN take steps to prevent diabetes from developing. Once you develop diabetes, it won’t go away, so it’s better to prevent it in the first place.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Pre-diabetes classes are for people who have a fasting blood sugar between 100 and 125. They are also for anyone who is at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. You are at risk for developing diabetes if you:

  • Have a family history of diabetes
  • Have had gestational diabetes or a baby weighing more than 9 lbs at birth
  • Have blood pressure greater than 140/90
  • Have low HDL cholesterol or high triglycerides
  • Are African American, Native American, Asian American, Hispanic American or Pacific Islander
  • Have been told by a doctor that you have “borderline diabetes” or a “touch of sugar”
  • Are overweight and underactive
  • As you get older, especially if you are overweight, your chances of developing diabetes increase
  • Anyone over age 45 who is overweight should be checked for diabetes
